Krista Janssen captivates us in the first of her Skye Trilogy. A half-breed Lakota Sioux warrior is forced to travel to Scotland by his Scottish father. In the Highlands, he adjusts to a challenging new culture, and finds unbridled passion with a daring young English woman. Strong-willed Beth Talbot leads a secret life in London writing for a political pamphlet - until she is dragged to Scotland by her uncle who insists she marry an aging Laird. The Laird's restless and newly educated half-breed son, Fletcher Mackinnon, is enchanted by Beth and maneuvers to save her from the unwanted marriage. Their attraction to each other becomes a glorious love, but a royal assassination plot in England puts their lives and their love in grave peril.
